Thcro is yet a lingering belief in tho
minds of some well-meaning persons that tho
grango movement is a political one, notwith
standing the pointed declaration to the con
trary in its platform ot principles, and the
frrqucnt assovcrations of its loaders. There
is not a single act from its origin to the
present timo that can bo construed into any
thing political, or evcu squinting in that di
rection ; not ono. Kvcry grange eschews
tho whole thing, and will not allow the
question uf politics to coiuo up in any shape.
Wo do not disguise tho fact that wo are
extremely anxious to disabuso the publio
mind on this subject, for wo dislike to see so
worthy an institution crippled and retarded
by these false accusations. Its aims aro too
valuable to be damaged alter this fashion.
It thoso who are constantly Haunting these
things into our teeth would tako the trouble
and pains to study its genius, and to com
prehend its widely published creed, they
would soon discover their error, and it thoy
were honest and disposed to do the fair
thing, they would cease their snarling oppo
sition on this account.
To-day wo havo every shade and color of
political sentiment iu our order, and, up to
this time, there has not been a jar in our
ranks. And why? llecauso it is so well
nown among us that wo will not tolerate
tho agitation of politics, and that we would
promptly expel a man who daro to do it.
c arc not blind to the stubborn tact, so
full of significance, that our organization,
now so strong and powcrlul, could not sur-
vivo ono twelvo months it this applo or dis
cord wero thrown into our midst. It would
ruin it. Ilcsidcs, thcro is no desire to make
the concern a political machiuo. i o are
too anxious to ameliorate tho intellectual,
moral, social and financial well-being of tho
agricultural world to embark in such lolly.
JAviwj Aye and Outlook:
Cash on Uhkuit. Tho order of Patrons
of Husbandry has adopted tho motto of "pay
as you go as the rule and guido ol their
financial transactions. This rule, hitherto
moro honored iu tho beach than tho obser
vance, must bo lived up to, if wo would reap
the lull benehts ot our labor.
It is the usual custom of unthinking minds
to decry tho merchant for onerous charges,
when his wares are purchased without cash
or its equivalent. Too many aro prouo to
consider that an unfair advantage is taken
of their necessities, and, while living upon
tho credits obtained of tho seller, tho buyer
denounces him without stint or reason.
Let us "put ourselves in his place." How
liiany ot us larmcrs would, bo willing to sell
our stock or crops at n cash valuation and
wait ono or more years for our pay, ussum
ing nil risks of inability, failures and frauds?
How many ol us would bo "even with the
world "in ten years ' if wo pursued this pol
icy? Tho undoubtd fact that ouly about
ono merchant in ten proves a successful ono,
shows conclusively that too great risks are
taken as too small compensations. 1 he mer
chant is not in fault in fact, ho is too len
ient only tho buyer has himself to blamn
for tho enormous per ceut. that credit de
Hut each year brings us nearer to a cash
basis, The old tlmo credit system, abolished
in theory, will become extinct in reality be-
the order of l'atrons of Husbandry has
so decreed, and nono can bo found to bolster
up this expensive relict of tho past. Sou of
There aro still u few Patrons who cling
with foud affection to tho custom of tho

Feed for Fowls. As lho woalhcr cets
colder, fowls aro cut off from many insects,
fruits, seeds, &o. To conqicoiato for this,
It is ncecssary to supply your birds with an
equivalent in nico bits. This can often bo
dona with scraps from tho tablo, leaves of
vegetables, &e. This is especially required
if fowls aro limited to a small run, for though
every ono who keeps fowls may not own a
Cvc-acro lot for them to run in, yot ho can
keep them in health and with profit to him
self, by giving them proper attention. When
fowls aro supplied with tho chango of food
thoy require, thoy soldom pcok off each others
feathers, but if thoy once commence it is
very hard to break them ol'snch a habit.
Pieces from tho tablo aro used with moro
profit to feed poultry than pigs, and they
supply that variety which nature requires.

of the minerals and tho cereals, and speci

Some of the most striking displays from

of the permanent exhibition in the main

exhibits from Spain, Denmark, Norway and
Venezuela, Mrs. Maxwell's collection of an
imals from Colorado and other stato collec

be ready by next spring, nnd it is intended
to make it purticulatly notable for its cera

that the exhibition is over, aud has been

Paris, in 1807, and afterward advocated it
in a public meeting at Doston. Springfield
Sounii Sknsk. Tho first and most commou
mistake is that children hear too much of
themselves, Especially is this tho case in
families where tho parents are conscientious
and havo mado their children tho first object
in life. They havo a well considered theory
to meet ovcry point in Joo and Jenny's ca
reer from teething to matrimony. The young
folks learn to regard thetuselva the solo ob
jects ol the labor, thought uud prayer of the
little world in which they live. Their faults
and virtues aro constantly discussed in their
presence. Tho chanco visitor is regaled
with an account of Joo's crooked teeth or
Jenuy's musical car. No matter how emi
nent for wit, learniug or piety tho guest at
tho tablo may be, his conversation is not
held to be half so important by father or
mother as tho silly, pert twaddlo of the
young folks, aud the young folks know it,
The result is inevitable. Tho children, if
they do not becomo selfish, are made, at
least, intolerably self-conscious i school nnd
college do not diminish their conceit, and it
needs years of hard friction with the world,
and a wronoh of disappointment at its neg
lect, as bitter as death, to givo tho man and
woman u proper estimate of themselves, and
to make usclul and rational pcoplo ot them
